STRANDED train passengers in Taunton were cheered up thanks to a delivery of pizza.

Hundreds of passengers were left at Taunton after storms damaged the line between Taunton and Exeter St David's.

But Great Western Railway staff came to the rescue, ordering 60 large pizzas from Domino's in Taunton to hand out to hungry passengers. 

The staff then went and collected the pizzas to give out, much to everyomne's delight.

Domino’s store manager, Hannah Collins said: “When we received a call from passengers stuck on the train at Taunton we did everything we could to make sure they had something fresh and hot to eat.

"They were very happy and it was great to do something to help make them smile.”
